Nail technician Krista Ortega decorates fingernails with long-lasting gel polish, and pampers toenails with a quick pedicure.
Krista Ortega at Salon Brands
While other artists dabble in paints, Krista Ortega works with dark lava and silver chrome—two of the Shellac nail-polish colors on the shelves of Salon Brands. The experienced nail technician employs these hues to gussy up hands and feet while routinely updating her spectrum of polishes, stocking new shades from brands such as CND. Her gallery showcases an eye for impressive designs: gold glitter sprinkled on deep red makes for a warm holiday manicure, whereas black tiger stripes on a purple base turn toes fierce. Krista uses traditional polish as well as gel and Shellac, whose formulas protect against chipping more effectively than keeping your hands in a wall safe for two weeks.
